From Selma to Saigon


From Selma to Saigon


Brother can you walk and talk

with me

Land in the ditch and the dock

with me

Tremble on the butcher's block

with me

From Selma to Saigon?


Brother can you share the load

with me

Answer to the gas and the goad

with me

Struggle on Freedom Road

with me

From Selma to Saigon?


Listen to the voice of victory

Flashing of flags that I shall not see

Brother will you carry one for me

From Selma to Saigon?


- Joe Wallace, Canadian Communist poet and militant 1969
